To be accurate in pointing out something, to precisely recognize or recall something

Etymology:

  • The idiom suggests exactly what it says. It refers to telling the exact thing. Just imagine if you put finger on something, you exactly tell what and where are those things. You precisely point it out. Similarly, if you exactly recall, date, name or fact about something then it means you put your finger on that thing. You identify the right thing or you recall exactly the right name or date of that thing.
